The School Board of Broward County, Florida, is honoring two high school students for representing Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) in the Sunshine State Scholars Program.  During a special presentation at the Tuesday, March 3, 2015 School Board meeting, Munir Libos from Cypress Bay High School and Ivy Li from Flanagan High School were recognized for their academic achievements.  
 
The Sunshine State Scholars Program recognizes the state’s top 11th grade students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), and encourages them to pursue their postsecondary education and future careers in Florida.  Each district in the state nominated two scholars, who were invited to attend a two-day event in Orlando on February 19 – 20, 2015, with their parents and a teacher of their choice, during which the scholars:
 
  • Received recognition for their achievements
  • Met with STEM industry leaders and learned about the latest innovations, discoveries and careers available in Florida
  • Talked with representatives from Florida’s Colleges and Universities about special programs of study and industry internship opportunities
 “We are incredibly proud of our District’s Sunshine State Scholars and I commend them for their outstanding academic achievements,” said Superintendent Robert W. Runcie.  “They are both incredible examples of the talented students we have in our District, and we are excited about the opportunities this prestigious program provides.”
